Thanks for reading,

Matt

First off, WELCOME ABOARD!  Glad to have you on the forum and thanks for your service to our country.  As a former Marine I salute you and the sacrifices you made.

Happy to hear that you found something to help and golf was there for you when you needed it most.

Super job on your first review... love reading about the 0211 irons as these were something that really piqued my interest when they offered the cut rate deal at 105 plus a free driver.  From what I can tell it really sounds like these are something you'll stick with for quite some time and they give you what you need and want on the course.

A couple of quick questions-

How does the finish hold up?  It looks to be a satin rather than chrome finish.
How is the dispersion?  The chart shows a 40-50 percent increase over the 0311!!

Again - great job on the review and WELCOME !!  We're happy to have you.

I've only played 3 rounds with them as well as about 10 practice sessions. I clean my clubs after every round and every practice session (I took the PW photos shortly after getting home from a practice session and hadn't cleaned them yet), and I haven't seen a single glint of issues with the finish. They are more of a satin finish which I like, I have not had any sun glare issues off of them which I love. I get way too distracted by glare especially during contact.

I believe the dispersion comes into play due to the forgiveness of the club. I can not speak of the claims of PXG when comparing the 0211 to 0311's. I will gladly reach out to them and ask them how they came up with this data.

I can tell you that my dispersion of my 7 iron from my Mizuno's which were fitted with KBS Tour shafts averaged 30 yards of dispersion from my two farthest balls from each other off 20 shots with severe miss-hits removed of course, and with the new 0211's fitted with the True Temper's reduced it down to 11 yards on average and had no sever miss-hits off 20 shots. This also goes for all of my clubs dispersion being reduced. I am no longer hitting pushes/hard fades. When I step up I have confidence that the ball is going to go where I'm aiming, and I can work it left or right as needed (as much as I can during my rebuilding phase). This could be to the 0211's being that much more forgiving, having a larger sweet spot, and also being fitted for new shafts which I haven't had done in 6 years.

Thank you. Not to get off topic but the thing that helped the most was falling in love with my wife. When I realized I loved her, I no longer had night terrors, no longer needed medicine to stop the night terrors or to sleep at night, I no longer needed doctors, anxiety meds nothing. It's like I was cured of all my troubles over night. It was that empty hole in my head and heart that needed to be filled. We've now been together for over 12 years and married for 11 this past July. Cheers to no more dark times like that ever again.

I forgot to ask how you like those Elevate VSS shafts?  Do you notice a significant difference (perhaps too soon to tell)?  I've seen some ad's recently for these and been interested in hearing some first hand reviews.

Please let me know what you think of my first review, and it's okay to be brutally critical I can handle it I'm a big boy.

Thanks for reading,

Matt


... OK Mat, here ya go. You have 2 daughters and "amazing gorgeous wife who is way too hot for me" so you know what sex is. Boxes are most assuredly not sexy. "SEXY AF?" Golf clubs are also not sexy. I have always thought describing something as "sexy" is the domain of Millennials that haven't had sex. Because if they had, they would not think a cardboard box is sexy. 🤪  "They are absolutely gorgeous at address." NOW we're talking! 

... That said, the review itself is 
excellent. Great read and very well done. Awesome photo's including the Disney pics! Plus you love Chicago's sports teams so how could I find any fault with any of it?

So you, like me, would describe the shipping boxes as "skookum" 😉.

I love them. I do play the S flex, and I get enough feed back on mishits to know it was a mishit. Between the vibration reduction in the shaft, the smoothness of the irons, and the softness of my grips I get just the perfect amount of feedback from them. They are a very smooth shaft through the loading and unloading process. I swing with a fast tempo and feel the load and unload on every swing.

AF As F**k. I don't consider myself a millennial, and I'm sorry for my usage of sexy. Gorgeous, tantalizing, shapely, luscious, desirable, beautiful, inviting, alluring. Take your pick and fill in the blanks where needed. JK LOL

Nope lol. My name is Matt Alt and old highschool nickname was alternator so some people started calling me Maltenator and it stuck 20+ years ago.

I’ve looped for enough PXG to throw in my $0.02..., I’m impressed, and that is not easily done, I’m on the fence about at what point they are worth the price, but if price isn’t a consideration I would highly recommend getting to a green grass demo day. Especially if you’re in the demographic of “not willing to concede I can’t get a little bit faster just yet...”

Tx. I will say the price is what stops A LOT of people. Fortunately enough they offer the Heroes program, which made them more affordable than any other major brands middle of the line, and top of the line clubs. I paid $1195 for 5-PW, GW, SW, LW, Driver (Free), and putter ($95 deal). Now let's compare that to my TM M6's I bought to go with them 3W, 3H, 4H which I paid $700 for with my military discount through TM the price also includes shaft, and grip upgrades. I looked at other brands, and with upgrades needed I was looking $1300-$1500 for irons alone, add in driver, extra wedges not available in a lot of other sets and putter it would never happen at the price I got.

Awesome review. I got fitted for my 0211's last Fall and absolutely love them. They have helped my game and my confidence on the course, especially with my long irons. I am pretty sure that they are now offering the PXG Hero discount to everyone right now, so if you are in the market for new irons check out the 0211's

Hi!

great review!

i actually agree on most of the things about the clubs.

they feel amazing, sound amazing and are easy to hit.

the only downside i see is that they seem to worn out quick. 
aside of this great option especially to have an eye catching iron at a affodable-ish price.

Great review indeed!  Can't find enough info on the 0211's, but figured if I didn't like them I can send them back.  My set should be here this weekend.  Since our courses aren't closed (Bakersfield, CA), I can test them out Sunday!  At $95 per stick, I'm getting new irons for way less than what I was considering (Callaway Apex and TM P790).  We'll see how this goes.

Introduction

My name is Matt I'm 36 that lives here in Mechanicsville, VA (Richmond Area). I have 2 awesome little daughters who are 8 and 7, and an amazing gorgeous wife who is way too hot for me and out of my league. I'm pretty lucky. I work in IT for the IRS, love all Chicago sports teams Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks, and Bulls. I am obsessed with Disney as is my family, we go once if not twice a year every year. I have been an avid golfer since I was 13. Before I met the best thing ever to come into my life, my wife, golf really saved me when I got out of the Air Force in 2006 and was dealing with PTSD. I got my handicap down to a 5, because I fully immersed myself into it to get away from all my demons, and horrible thoughts in my head. For these reasons, I will never turn my back on the sport as it was there when I needed something that can't be explained the most at that point in my life. Unfortunately due to 4 knee surgeries a meniscus repair, a meniscus removal after tearing it for the 2nd time 4 years to the day after I tore it the first time, a meniscus implant, and a clean out around my ACL, my game has slipped severely over the last 9 years since my original injury in 2010, and only being able to play as much as my knee would let me. My knee is finally back to 100% and can dive back into the sport I love. I am currently a 15 handicap and working my way back down slowly. I never lost my swing, but I need to get back to where I was mentally. All of my extra strokes come from mental errors and minor misses, and getting down on myself because I know I can be as good as I once was if not better. I have gamed Mizuno JPX 800 Pro forged irons the last 6 years since 2013, and have always felt there is no better feeling iron to me than Mizuno's, then I went out on a whim, and decided to overhaul my whole bag from bag all the way down to putter this year. I got fitted for PXG 0211's and from the moment I hit the first ball, I was addicted to them. So without further ado here is the review below.

These are from our Disney trip we just got back home from on Aug 18th. Also, sorry for such large photos (but details right?).

681298598_US1.thumb.jpg.32407c7ce102b236da5a6d226681148c.jpg985550544_US2.thumb.jpg.449da653bfd87f97a41f04f47f6347f8.jpg

About the club

These are PXG's first cast club. I feel they are PXG's answer to reach the masses, and make an affordable club for all golfers.

According to their website they state "We packed our 0211s with three key GEN2 technologies. First and most important is a hollow body design filled with our proprietary COR2 polymer, the world's thinnest club face (made possible by the COR2) and a 360-degree undercut perimeter channel around the club face that expands the functional size of the face. These three technologies combined result in a club that goes farther, launches higher, feels softer, sounds great, is more forgiving and has a sweet spot the size of Texas."

Looks 10 out of 10

The PXG 0211 irons are a progressive iron set, meaning the amount of offset gradually decreases the shorter the clubs become. For example, the 4-iron has slightly more offset than the 5, and so on through the wedges.

Progressive sets offer more forgiveness in the long irons, where it's needed most for all golfers. There isn't much offset needed in the 8-iron up due to golfers being more proficient with them.

In the long irons, the 0211 have a very good offset and a little noticeable sole sticking out past the top line.  When you get to the scoring irons, the 0211 there is less offset and less sole sticking out.

I would put these into the middle of a players and game improvement iron. They have somewhat of a slim top line, a decently wide sole, and the blades are longer than most players irons, and Bob Parsons wasn't lying when he said they have a sweet spot the size of Texas. 

They are absolutely gorgeous at address.

Sorry these are the only photos I have at address and it's the PW. But aren't the center strike ball marks BEAUTIFUL?

Sound & Feel 10 out of 10

These feel absolutely smoother than any golf club I have ever hit. Forged or cast, this is due to hollow body design with their proprietary COR2 polymer. When hit they leave no doubt that the ball is going for a long ride. They are very very soft with a spring like sensation off center faced strikes. It has a very nice strong and clean mid pitch at impact, that gives immediate feedback for mishits, which are hard to do with their sweet spot.

 

Performance 10 out of 10

Having been fitted by a PXG fitter I had high expectations for what theses should produce, these expectations were met and surpassed in all categories. 

Borrowed this from another site so I'm quoting "The 0211 features the same face material (HT1770 maraging steel) as the 0311 GEN2, which works in conjunction with PXG’s more responsive second generation COR2 polymer material – the goo filling that allows for the thinnest iron face on the market – to preserve ball speed across the whole of the face.

Like the 0311 GEN2, it offers an internal face perimeter cut-out. It’s a design which leverages an undercut cavity and moves the weld lines between the two pieces to the outer perimeter of the club (as opposed to on the face itself). It’s a forgiveness-boosting feature that makes for an effectively larger face without increasing the size of the clubhead."

The forgiveness and the wider soles is where the clubs really shine and help make thin misses playable and not penalize the player as bad as some other irons would.

I have found the spin in the short to mid irons to be sufficient enough to hold greens, and not send the ball rolling off once they land, and the wedges paired with a good quality ball makes it easy to zip the ball back something I haven't been able to do in a long time.

Where the progressive design helps me most is in the 5 iron, with the extra offset, I can launch the ball easier than my old 5 iron and not worry about it going anywhere but straight. 

I have gained 10-12 yards of carry over my old Mizuno's. This could be impart to being slightly stronger lofted clubs as well, but I feel it has more to do with newer technology and a faster face. PXG also claims these have "the thinnest face in golf" and I haven't seen any other company argue this.

Upgrades 5 out of 10

I give the upgrades a 5 because they don't offer many shaft options comparatively to competitors (they have the same number of brands but the shaft models are more limited than other brands), and the upgrade price on shafts is on par with other manufacturers. I do feel the shaft offerings fit a large variety of golfers, and my fitter had me dialed into my shaft within about 20 minutes, then went through every club to ensure that it would suit me through every iron.

The biggest drop in score here is there are no additional grips that can be upgraded to. The only option is the Lamkin Z5 which I gave a try, and hated after 1 round due to not being tacky and soft enough but this is purely subjective on how you like your grips. I quickly replaced them with my preferred Winn Dri-Tacs. 

Quite shocking since PXG is known to be all custom built, the 0211s have what amounts to a true stock shaft offering for the first time. True Temper’s new Elevate is the steel offering. The standard Elevate is a 95g offering (available in R and S flex), and the Elevate Tour 115g (available in S and X flexes). I was fitted with the Elevate Tour through all my irons.

Both Elevate shafts feature VSS (Vibration Suppression System) technology. A fresh take on the Sensicore principle, VSS reduces unwanted vibrations by 71% in the standard Elevate, while VSS PRO reduces unwanted vibrations by 56% in the Elevate Tour.

The graphite offering is the just-released MMT from Mitsubishi.

Fitters and buyers will still have access to PXG’s full shaft matrix, but there is a per club upcharge of $25 (both steel and graphite) to move out of the stock offerings.

Miscellaneous 10 out of 10

First and foremost the customer service is OUTSTANDING, they keep you informed through the whole process all you have to do is call and ask. You can call 844-PLAY-PXG and they will set you up with a fitter at no expense to you. They sent my fitter from 2 hours away and spent 3 hours with me. There was absolutely no pressure from his end either for me to make a purchase. 

They have a 30 day playability guarantee and a 1 year manufacturer's warranty on defects.

Also, the boxes these come in are the nicest, sturdiest, best looking boxes I have ever seen golf clubs come in.

Sorry the photo isn't the best, I was excited to get the boxes open and check the clubs out so I just snapped a quick photo.

Price 7/10 out of 10

My reasoning for the 7/10 out of 10 is if you're an Active duty member, Veteran, or First Responder and can be verified through ID.ME on their website the price is 10/10, you can snag these for the same price if not less than any other major brand out there. I paid $105 an iron for mine, but they have raised the price to $125 an iron for steel or graphite. Also, if you buy six of them you receive a free Gen 1 driver of your choice, and are offered a Gen 1 putter of your choice for $95, which I took advantage of both offerings opting for the 0811XF and Mustang putter. 

If you do not fall into these categories they will run you $195 an iron for steel offering, and $210 for graphite and this is the reasoning for a 7/10.

Shipping costs $30 for a single iron, $60 for irons and woods , and $100 for a whole set. Also, it is a direct signature required VIA FedEx this guarantees they hit your hands and not stolen off your porch. If you're lucky enough to live in the area, you can also pick them up from their headquarters for free.

Conclusion and Overall 10 out of 10

I give the clubs a 10 out of 10 overall because they are absolutely one of the best clubs I have ever gamed, demoed, swung. Now I know this is very subjective as well, and what works for me won't work for the masses. I would not think twice if asked if I recommend these clubs, because I would a million times over. PXG’s goal with the 0211 irons was to bring the performance and feel of their 0311 irons to golfers at a lower price.  They blew this goal out of the water.

The progressive set is designed extremely well to fit the vast majority of golfers, although it doesn't offer the flexibility of the different 0311 models. If price has been scaring you away from PXG irons, call and get fitted because these are budget friendly comparative to their other models, and even more so for military, veterans and first responders.

 

Please let me know what you think of my first review, and it's okay to be brutally critical I can handle it I'm a big boy.

Thanks for reading,

Matt

 

 

 

Great review!

I have the same clubs and i am 100% in line with your test.

If i have to say the only downside i saw is little quick wear on the faces compare to my previous Apex cf19.

For the rest awesome set

Maltenator...Outstanding review on the PXG 0211 irons.  I was in the Navy for 20 years and it made me a better person, thank you for your service to our country and what a great wife you have.  Im getting my new 0211 on Tuesday, I cannt wait to get these babies in their new home.  Im getting the graphic shafts but Im not sure which one...I have read so many articles about 0211 and everybody says good things about them, I'm current using Ping G410 irons but I dont like the feel and sound, do you like the feel and sound with the 0211???

To add to the reviews here. I’m coming off of i500. In the short irons, the 0211 are great, but I miss the mid and long irons. These seem just a bit to long blade length wise past the 8 iron, maybe the 7. I can look past it because the feel and sound is miles better than the i500 (not as powerful, much softer with the PXG) and in the scoring clubs I get less flyers. Distance wise I’d say the go about the same. I gamed gen 1 0311 for a bit and these seem to hold up appearance wise a bit better and don’t scream PXG as much on the first tee. 
 

Anyone try to remove the badge on the back? Maybe it’s boredom kicking in but I’m thinking about giving it a try.
